Jenn Whitmer, CLEC 2023 Closing KeynoteThe 2023 CLEC Steering Committee is excited to announce the 2023 Clinical Laboratory Educators Conference (CLEC) Closing Keynote will feature Jenn Whitmer’s presentation, Imagine the Opportunity in Conflict, on Saturday, March 4, at 11:30 am Central. Your success as a leader will rise and fall with your ability to manage conflict. Conflict avoided creates unhealthy and unproductive teams. Conflict mismanaged wastes your time, erodes trust, and often strikes more harm than good. If you don’t learn how to communicate effectively through conflict, there are so many misses: miscommunication, mistakes, missed opportunities, missed instruction, missed advancement, and even missed people. Not to mention how exhausting and demoralizing unhealthy conflict feels.

And yet, there is a better way. You can use the power of knowing your personality in conflict resolution. You can use the opportunity of conflict to build trust with students, colleagues, and partners. And you create peace in conflict, so everyone comes out whole on the other side. From a recovering conflict avoider who used to moonwalk out of hard conversations, come learn with humor and stories how conflict can be your way to an engaged and flourishing team.

Jenn Whitmer helps teams and leaders solve conflict, cultivate communication, and create empowered teams. Specializing in interpersonal conflict resolution, leadership, and the Enneagram, she helps others communicate through difficulty so they can build confidence, lead powerfully, and live with peace and wholeness.
